I LOVE coupons!

I have completely turned into the crazy lady at the grocery store that is holding up the line because she has all these coupons and knows exactly how much everything she is buying is and why it isn't ringing up properly .....yes.....that is me. But it makes me so excited to get so much for so little that I can't help myself! Look at what I purchased today! I got all of this for less than 50 dollars! I shopped at Walgreen's and Safeway.

Here are my beauty supplies.
Here are my cleaning supplies.
Here is my food.
Here is my medicine.
50 DOLLARS!!! How exciting is that? And here is the best part, I saved, 106.00 dollars! That is CRAZY! Man I love the grocery game. And tomorrow I am on to Albertson's.

Last night Josey wanted me to video tape her singing again and I just had to post the funniest one because it is just too funny. She just recently saw parts of the Disney movie Camp Rock and that is where this song and.....scene is from. She is too funny and I would just like to say that I think I do a pretty good job holding in the laughter. Imagine watching that in person and not laughing! Sorry it is so dark.

For some reason it posted extremely dark which is unfortunate because the facial expressions were THEE best! Sorry.

Here are some little snippets from the show. Sorry some are sideways..... I hate that.

Dustin was a GREAT MC as expected!

Maddy told her jokes like a true actress. You never would have guessed at how nervous she was!I was really surprised at how well she told her jokes. She had true comedic timing and inflection! She is working on a song for the next talent show. She just wasn't quite prepared with one for this time. Plus she displayed some of her beautiful artwork.

And Josey sang her ever famous "Rockstar" rendition. As you can tell in the video her nerves seemed to get the better of her as compared to this. But she sounded beautiful and I am amazed that she could get up there at 6 and sing that song up on the big stage with a spotlight on her all by herself!

And these next two shots are for the Danville folk. This is Brother and Sister B doing their contribution, "The Grand Mamas and the Papas". It was truly funny. I wish that I could have gotten a better shot of Roger with his great wig on but Sharon was seriously priceless! Man I hope I look that good when I am her age!

Back-to-school night

Last night was back-to-school night. The girls were so excited to take us to their classrooms and go to the book fair. Here is Maddy outside her classroom with her self portrait she drew.
And Josey outside her classroom with her first day of school photograph.And of course Lilly wanted a picture as well.
Here is Maddy favorite spot in her classroom I think. They have a veritable insect zoo in there! Everything from caterpillars to praying manti.
Of course Josey was in heaven as well!

We headed over to Josey's classroom. She was showing me some of her work and wanted to sing this song they learned it is!

Here is Josey with a few girls from her class. I actually don't know who they are and if you can't tell Josey did not want to stop and be in the picture but one of the girls moms was INSISTING that they get a picture together. It's cute though.
And Lilly was just excited to be AT SCHOOL!
Afterward we took them out to ice cream. I wasn't originally planning on taking a picture inside Baskin Robbins......cause that's weird. But after we got their ice cream we went to sit down and Josey noticed that they had the exact same kinds of ice cream as the people in the big poster we were sitting next to. Isn't that kinda weird? And it is even weirder how much they each looked like the kids in the picture. They were like twins! Especially Maddy.

Sunday outtings

One of our favorite things to do on Sundays is go explore knew places, or go for drives or walks. We have been going to a few parks close by to take some "hikes" (really just walks). But this was out latest adventure.Maddy was equipped with the binoculars.....Josey was equipped with a map.....And Lilly was equipped with......her entire foot on the ground! Not just the toes! Look at that. Doesn't that look weird? Okay I guess just to me because I am so used to seeing her run around on her tip toes. Lately she has figured out how to walk on her "whole" foot we call it. If we remind her she can do it. But as soon as she isn't thinking about it anymore she pops up on her tip toes.We followed the trail with everyone taking turns with the map.
I think Lilly got us lost.

And then we saw the river poking through and decided to make it all the way over to the river. (Dustin's finger wasn't intentionally supposed to be in this picture but it works.)

And we finally made it to a cute little beach by the river. The girls had tons of fun wading in the water.
And that was our Sunday excursion!

The Joker

Dustin always laughs that Lilly's hair looks like the jokers hair on the new batman movies. Today she got into my make-up which hasn't happened in a REALLY long time. But I actually saw the resemblance Dustin has been referring to. That wasn't very nice mom......

FIrst day of "princess" school

Since the girls started back to school, Lilly has asked me everyday if she can go to school. She really really wants to go to school. She tells me that she wants to go to princess school though. So last Friday I packed her a lunch in her lunch box and took her to "school". She was so excited. We walked down to our little park stopping at every flower and every bug. Not usually something she gets to do when we are taking a walk with everyone.

And we sat and enjoyed our lunch with a princess napkin to boot! I figure, there were other kids there that are home schooled and that is technically like part of their school so this really does count as school for Lilly. She loved it and has continued to ask to go to school everyday. I think we will make it a Friday thing.

Crystal Cleavage

So I was playing with Lilly this morning and she was sitting on my lap and she dropped this big huge blue crystal heart (picture below) down my shirt. I was actually half playing and half reading a book. Well I forgot about it and didn't feel it in my cleavage and went about running some errands throughout the day. I picked up Lilly when we got home, causing the crystal heart to push against my skin and realized at that moment that I had been in public with a giant blue crystal heart poking out through my cleavage with a white shirt covering half of it up.....that's not embarrassing or anything.

Bryan and Sam

I hope I don't get in trouble for posting these but I had to show everyone how beautiful my sister's wedding pictures came out. They both look absolutely amazing! They are both of course very attractive people but the photographer Kelli Nicole did such a beautiful job didn't she? There are many more but she hasn't posted those yet. When she gets some of my family I will definitely post them!

Makes me want to get married Dustin of course....just with a different photographer maybe.
